Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What once was "ho-hum" is now "Oh, Wow!"

Ever have a song that back in the day you never got too excited about seeing at a show, or hearing on tape, but now absolutely love? I have had this happen with a few songs, mostly the slower ones. I now think it was primarily due to the fact that as a young pup I was more interested in the hopping tunes that got me moving. When songs like Wharf Rat, Brokedown Palace, Must Have Been The Roses and the like popped up, I would immediately sit down and light up a smoke, take time to do a quick inventory of my "stuff" (you know what I'm talking about, don't try to deny it) and generally just catch my breath. If I was in the same place today, I would not so easily have my attention drawn away from the music. I enjoy fewer things more than a heart-wrenching Wharf Rat or a soul-dredging Roses these days. I'm guessing this can be chalked up to the fact that as I age, my general taste in music overall has seen a shift to slower and more intricate stuff (although I will still blast AC/DC's "Whole Lotta Rosie" from time to time). Anybody else have similar experiences with the music over the years? Or am I just a freak? Go ahead, be honest...

This thought popped up as a result of the "Loser" post earlier today.

Yeah, Truckin'. I just thought it was GD-pop, but now that I have heard many more versions, I really enjoy a hot Truckin'. Also, Sugaree. Somebody I respected made a negative comment about this song and ruined it for me....temporarily. I now love it....especially the loooooong ones.

Hey Man i still have a problem with some of the cc riders from 81'. But through the groks i have been liking that song or maybe tollerating it a bit more. It is definetly a song that has grown on me since i've been here./ But then again maybe it's just the fact that i will never see the boy's in all their glory play that tune again!! One never knows. Kinda like DAY JOB????? Nahhh!

PS I always loved a good Wharf! And for my good friend Annie... a Roses!! AND YES you are a freak!!!

Dark Star. It always seemed that Jerry couldn't remember the words, so he had to play for 20 minutes until he could remember the second stanza.

Black Peter was one for me. Although I dont recall if I ever saw it live, I do remember "fast forwarding" through it on tapes years ago.
